Re: documented vessels

Yes, you must transfer the vessel documentation to your name.

Re: documented vessels

The way I read the FAQ's, you can elect to have the vessel deleted from documentation.
The FAQ's aren't specific...I'd call the CG for an answer.

HOW DO I DELETE A VESSEL FROM DOCUMENTATION?
A vessel may be deleted from documentation upon the request of the vessel owner or an authorized agent on behalf of the owner. The request must be in writing and is to include the vessel’s official number. The original Certificate of Documentation (COD) is to be returned by the owner named on the certificate.

Re: documented vessels

Tempest is correct. You need to re-document. Don't let the broker talk you into a service -- the forms are easy and NVDC is a phone call away.

A copy of the title or registration must be provided WITH the original or copy of bill(s) of sale from the owner shown on this paperwork to the applicant. For vessels under a foreign registry similar to U.S. Documentation, a copy of the registration and evidence of removal from that registry must be provided.

Re: documented vessels

You should re-document just for the purpose of establishing ownership. You can then delete or let the documentation expire and register it locally if you like.

IF one is a resident, some states require you to register whether the vessel is documented or not. My documented vessel must still be registered in NJ every year and I must display the registration decal. I am only exempt from having to display the State registration numbers on the bow.

I was not inferring that registration was not necessary. Just that he has to at least document and/or register locally. Some states require both but he did not ask about registering, just documenting.

Re: documented vessels

kj, documenation ensures a good title to the next buyer. So even if your boat is smaller, cheaper, older, and you have no interest in maintaining the documented status?

It may be worth your while to have the documentation updated to your name (it is a free renweal annually after you have it changed) because sooner or later, when you go to sell the boat...The next buyer knows they are getting a clean title when they are buying a documentated vessel, and that may be well worth the hundred dollar cost you pay now.

There are different legal obligations and benefits to the owners of documented vessels as well, but those have gotten fewer and fewer and apply mainly when you are out of US waters.
